Summer Global Business Program
Santiago, Chile
Academic Information
IFSA-Butler offers an eight-week study abroad program at the School of Business and Economics at
Universidad de Chile in Santiago. This document is designed to provide you with a general overview of
the program’s academic requirements and course offerings in order to prepare you for a successful
summer abroad. Please review this document along with the “Academics” section of your Preparing to
Study Abroad guide, which was included in your welcome packet.
What is the academic structure of the Summer Global Business Program?
The program allows you to enroll in three classes specially designed for IFSA-Butler students at the
School of Business and Economics at Universidad de Chile. These classes, taught in Spanish by Chilean
professors, are intended to provide you with an understanding of the events and issues that make Chile
what it is today.
What are the registration conditions?
You must take a full course load as determined by IFSA-Butler, which is 9 U.S. semester credit hours for
the summer. Credit will be awarded on a Butler University transcript based on a typical U.S. summer
course load. Taking less than a full course load may jeopardize your student status and result in personal
academic repercussions and/or loss of financial aid.
All courses are graded on an A–F scale, and there is no provision for pass/fail or auditing courses unless
pass/fail is the only method of assessment for the course. Students are not allowed to register for online, distance education or hybrid courses. See the “Academics” and “Program Fees and Financial Aid”
sections in Preparing to Study Abroad for more information.
What program courses does IFSA-Butler offer?
The following courses are specially designed for IFSA-Butler students on the Summer Global Business
program. You are required to enroll in all three courses offered on this program: Culture,
Management and Business, Doing Business in South America, and
Sustainable Development in the Southern Cone. Please refer to the
“Program Courses” section of your program materials for detailed
course syllabi.

Culture, Management and Business (3 U.S. semester credit
This course is conducted in Spanish and combines language
instruction in Spanish with a survey of concepts used in
economics and business, as well as a study of business-related
vocabulary and Chilean business practices.
Doing Business in South America (3 U.S. semester credit
This course is conducted in Spanish by university professors. It
provides an analytical framework to further students’
understanding of four thematic areas: Strategic context for international business in South America,
economic and trade context in South America, legal and business practices in Chile, and practicalities of
conducting business in Chile.
Sustainable Development in the Southern Cone (3 U.S. semester credit hours)
This course is conducted in Spanish by university professors. Its aim is to identify and evaluate the
process of development in the Southern Cone and its impact in businesses. This course concentrates on
how natural resources, environment, pollution, and many other factors play a strategic role when doing
business in South America.
What is the Universidad de Chile like?
The University of Chile is the country’s oldest and largest public institution of higher education. All
courses are held at the Universidad de Chile’s School of Business and Economics, whose undergraduate
business program was recently named as one of the best in Chile. The campus of the business and
economics school is small but modern and located minutes by subway from the heart of downtown
What Universidad de Chile courses are available to me?
Students can only enroll in the three courses described above. Students are not eligible to enroll in
other classes taught at the Universidad de Chile. All courses are worth 3 U.S. semester credit hours.
How will I register for courses?
Course registration will take place when you arrive in Chile.
What do I need to know about exams?
All academic obligations, including final exams, must be completed before leaving Chile. You are not
permitted to reschedule exams, request alternate assessment or arrange to have your exams proctored in
the United States. If this occurs, IFSA-Butler will not be able to assist you in conducting an academic
record query on the class in which you made this arrangement. Additionally, all academic obligations,
including final exams, must be complete before leaving Chile.
How will my home university know what my classes were and what grades I received?
After you return to the U.S., IFSA-Butler will send a Butler University transcript to your home university.
The transcript reflects the courses taken, credits attempted and grades earned at Universidad de Chile
during your summer abroad. We will also send an official transcript to your permanent home address.
What if I need academic help during the semester?
In addition to the formal Spanish class, our program can organize tutoring sessions for students
Institute for Study Abroad® • 1100 W. 42nd St., Suite 305 • Indianapolis, IN 46208 • 800-858-0229 • Fax: 317-940-9704 •
throughout the summer. Please meet with the IFSA-Butler resident staff if you would like the
assistance of a tutor.
Each IFSA-Butler student will also be paired with a local Chilean student from the School of Business and
Economics at the Universidad de Chile. This mentor will not only help with day-to-day student life issues,
but will also be a language partner for the IFSA-Butler student, with the aim of fostering cultural and
language exchange.
Are there any special events organized by the program?
Excursions are designed to complement the academic components of the program and include day trips
to the Banco Central, the seaport of Valparaíso, a Chilean vineyard, a copper wine, and local small
businesses. A three-day excursion to La Serena in northern Chile to study small and medium-sized
businesses and seaports is also planned.
In addition to the thematic excursions, students will also have the opportunity to attend five national and
international forums where guest speakers discuss current events related to business issues in Chile.

Family Placement Form
Programs in Latin America
Keep this page. Fill out the attached program family preference questionnaire, make a
copy of it for your records, and return it to us within 10 days.
Study abroad is much more than academics. Learning takes place not only during class, but 24 hours a day. One of the best
out-of-class experiences is the homestay. It is a vital, required component of our program. Additionally, living with a host
family is the factor most cited as helping improve students’ Spanish.
We’ve found that students who are happy with their housing are generally happy in their adopted country. To make the
most of living with a host family, you must be flexible.
1. Redefine family. Most students on our program imagine the perfect host family as one with two parents, some college-
aged kids and a dog; however, we have very few families in our program that conform to that image. Generally, such
families have very little time or space to commit to international students and are too busy to really interact with the
international student.
On the other hand, few students enter our program excited about the prospect of living with a widow or single mother,
but sometimes these less traditional families provide the best experiences. Older widows or couples have already
raised their children and are familiar with the expectations of a young, newly-independent adult. Many truly enjoy the
company of the student. Because we “recycle” host families that receive favorable ratings from students, we have a
large number of this type of family.
2. Taste all the food given to you. The foods you eat abroad will be very different from those to which you are accus-
tomed. Even if you are certain that you will not like a new food, try it anyway out of politeness.
A special note to vegetarians: vegetarians are poorly understood in Latin America, and they are often undernourished.
Before departing the United States, you should decide how strict you are going to be. You should be as flexible as you
feel comfortable, and be careful to stay healthy by including enough vitamins, calcium and proteins in your diet.
3. Smoking is still considered socially acceptable in many parts of Latin America, and so the likelihood of being placed in
a home where people smoke is quite high. For this reason, we cannot guarantee that you will be placed in a non-smoking household, if that is what you prefer.
4. Be prepared to give up some independence. U.S. students have more disposable income and independence than
young adults in other countries and societies in the world. Students in Latin America usually live at home with their
parents throughout their college years, and they maintain the parent/child relationship until later in life.
Your host parents will treat you just as they are accustomed to treating others of your age group. Some students compare living with a host family to returning to high school; you will be in classes during the day and return each night to
a family that is concerned about your well-being. What U.S. students may consider controlling behavior by the host
family is usually a legitimate concern for their safety. Most host families relax their rules after a few weeks of getting to
know the student.
5. What’s the single most important factor? Host family assignments are made using the information you provide on the
attached questionnaire. While we try to accommodate your preferences when placing you, we can’t always take all of
them into account. Please indicate what is most important to you so we can concentrate on your top priority when
placing you with a host family.
While most host families have an altruistic interest in sharing their home, culture and country with a international student,
the family receives a monthly payment for the housing service it provides. As a paying guest, you should feel comfortable
in your new home. If you are unhappy after a trial period of a few weeks, discuss your housing situation with our resident
director. We’ll help you resolve any problems.
